Legal advice

As part of our activity, we offer those seeking help a free legal advice and other assistance. Our work is limited to the out-of-court legal advice in asylum and immigration law as well as in the fields of labor law and social law, insofar as these are related to asylum and immigration law. For help seekers there is also the possibility of a long-term and thus also closer supervision. In such a case, the legal advisers, acting as attorneys, will represent the interests in the administrative procedure. However, the organisation “Refugee Law Clinic Göttingen e.V.” does not consider itself to be, in no case, a substitute for the legal service. We rather try by our activities to help those seeking help – especially those who cannot afford an attorney’s counseling – to provide cost-free access to legal advice and thus equal opportunities between the assistance-seekers and the government agencies involved.

How? – As part of our open consultation hours, we offer migrants, especially asylum seekers and refugees, cost-free legal advice in asylum and immigration law as well as in the fields of labor and social law. You are welcome to come to our open consultation hours without registration.

What? – We also help with information on the process of the asylum procedure, hearing of the applications, family reunification, prospects of stay, deportations, the Dublin procedures, naturalizations, information on the legal actions (suit), questions on social law (AsylbLG, SGB II, SGB XII) and questions on labor law.

Please note that no legal advice via email, phone or Facebook is possible! For this purpose, please use the open consultation hours.
